Merry Samhain’s Eve!

by evilnymphstuff

Yeah it’s finally Halloween!

I hadn’t had the opportunity to celebrate it and I feel tired because of two exams papers I had to take today. Anyway, that doesn’t mean I didn’t really do anything for Halloween! And first of all I prepared my blog post for it :)

When I came home the first thing I did was to do my Parshell cross! It’s an old Irish tradition for All Hallow’s Eve. Simple and fun to do ^^ check out how HERE. My Parshell of the year:

Back to Teens!

by evilnymphstuff

I’d never thought that I’d come back to teens’ books.

I usually read young adults or adults books, you know those which are 400+ pages :P As an avid reader since I was born (yeps my mom did the reading for me until I was grown enough to read by my own – I was so excited at that time and frustrated that I didn’t know many words), my reading levels went up very quickly. I read teens books when I went to secondary school therefore at 11 years of age. I read R.L. Stine, Christopher Pike, well there were so many. But NO Sweet Valley or things like that! Yeps at that age I was also very picky about books… and authors! There was a time when I would only read Pike’s books and no one else. Of course that changed. Then at 13 I think, I started with literary books like Jane Austen and Charles Dickens and Alexandre Dumas and Victor Hugo and…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Opportunity

by evilnymphstuff

“Opportunity”. This is the theme given for this week and we have to interpret this idea into a photo.

First we must define this term:

So what is opportunity to me? It’s a path, a road to success, to a better life. It’s when you have the ability to choose what is best for you. It’s hope.

I’m on the roof of my house. It’s early in the evening but the sun is setting already. I love to go there because where I live, this is the only ‘room’ when sunlight hits the most. That’s where we hung our clothes for them to dry LOL

Sites of the Month: October 2011

by evilnymphstuff

Before I get to the point of this post…

This month has been very fully active for me. First and foremost: October is the climax of my student life i.e. it involves exams! And worse! Now that Samhain’s Eve and NaNoWriMo are approaching, my international exams have come to their hottest points too! I feel that this week will be a very busy – productive is a nice word too I guess – with all of this. In addition I have to keep up with my two blogs and Twitter and read the blogs I’ve faithfully been subscribed too and therefore I have to check my mail constantly… Moreover now that my sister’s exams are over – she’s just 11 – and as she’s going to secondary school next year I allow her to have a glimpse of internet – i.e. I’m sharing my laptop with her… so I have less time for my virtual activities… which is so frustrating right now! Then there are the passive activities like reading and watching my favourite series, plus my urge of the night: to write in bed in my random copybook (you saw it here) – which is starting to lack pages… aww too bad I so loved it! I’ll ask my friend to buy another for me :P (it was a gift from this very friend you see)

But you know what? I love my life that way.

Yes. You read it.

LOL coffee

Haha I always find some interesting image on Google to add some… uh coffee? to a blog post! :D

Burning in Heaven: Here we go NaNo!

by evilnymphstuff

“Burning in Heaven”: the final title of my NaNo story.

burning heart in fire

A very useful exercise to all those who is participating in NaNo:

Know your story well. Do you think you do? Well if the answer is yes, then try to summarise your story in one sentence. If you can, you can proudly say that you’re ready to begin!

A NaNo Update!

by evilnymphstuff

Firstly before I go on with the point of this post, which as you can read in my previous post I promised to write, I’d like to share a wonderful, touching post on the ups and downs of friendship – written by Aurora here: FRIENDSHIP: WHAT IS A FRIEND?.

Alright now… we are approaching Nanowrimo… and as I’m a planner, I’ve begun to plan my story and I’ve come halfway to it :)

I wrote everything down in a copybook… but as it was a mess, I decided to divide my notes into chapters (I used to do that for fanfictions) by index cards. Each card is one chapter and on one side I write the chapter number, while on the other side I plot main points. This is an awesome way to organise NaNo. Get inspired in an Alexandra Sokoloff’s post: The Index Card Method and Structure Grid

The Impersonifications of A Teenage Girl

by evilnymphstuff

On one of my inspiring nights, my pen started to write…

copybook with handwriting

Alright so I wrote about 2 pages recto verso + half next page…

I was writing about my life in all… how it changed/evolved since I entered secondary school when I was 11.

And you know what. My teenage life has been full of impersonifications! I guess I’m still trying to find my true self…

Anyway, I think I’ll copy what I wrote so that you can get to know a little bit more about me personally… I feel the need to type it down…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Possibility

by evilnymphstuff

This week’s photo challenge gave us a more open theme to ponder on: ‘Possibility’. Great so when I tell you ‘possibility’ what first comes into your mind? Believe me I had no idea what original photo could I capture to convey this. But a little incident this evening changed this completely.

Unfortunately I didn’t have my camera with me so I had to use my little Nokia 3120 classic… LOL

Before I begin the ‘narration’ of what happened that I couldn’t go for my camera etc… here’s a snapshot of ‘Possibily’ in an Evil Nymph’s way:

In my list of life principles, one of my first ones were: Everything is possble.

Girls’ Blouses: Adding some styles…

by evilnymphstuff

I’m a great fan of blouses with check designs like this:

The style of it is awesome enough to just wear it with anything.

But with some imagination…

Halloween Plans? Need some Advice!

by evilnymphstuff

We’re in October and in a few weeks my favourite festival of all time will be occuring: Halloween or Samhain’s Eve!

halloween pumpkins

Without beating about the bush, let me tell you the problem: here, we never celebrate Halloween. It’s just not part of our cultures as in Mauritius we are most of the Asian origins. In addition to that, on Monday I started my O-level exams and that’s why I might not be posting much (I’m soo sorry for that!) and I will be taking part in these international exams until November 15 (arg!!). The horrible thing is that on October 31 I will have to sit at examinations!!!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Comfort

by evilnymphstuff

I’ve been following The Daily Post since I’m on WordPress but I’ve never had the occasion to participate in the Weekly Photo Challenge, which consists of take photos related to a particular theme, until now, because I’d always forget it.

But this week I reminded myself to take photos of what is Comfort to me!

comfort in writing

Sometimes when I’m upset I seek comfort in writing out my feelings, or simply writing anything, from an idea to a short story. These are my copybooks that I use of story ideas, songs, learning languages (only partly because I always get bored when grammar comes in LOL), wishes, etc.

A Black Skull… and I’m ready for my exams!

by evilnymphstuff

black pencil case with skull

If you have been following my blog, you know that I will be taking part in exams soon. In fact I’ll finally begin – after all this time! a whole semester of gathering whatever we learnt from these 5 years we’ve been in secondary school – on Monday, i.e. tomorrow! I’m so nervous!!

In addition I will start with an important subject – important because I am thought to be very good at it and therefore I can’t fail to get good marks in it – which is French Literature.

The photo above shows my transparent pencil case – yes as it is an international British exam it’s very formal and they need to ensure that you don’t cheat – with my skull necklace that I tied to the zip to add some ‘comfort’ to such a plain case. On the right in the pencil case you can also notice my favourite eraser on which I pierced 3 dots because in TSCC (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles – my favourite series of all time) it’s very symbolic :) The background is only my usual and favourite jacket “Psycho Girl” :D

I will be in exam period for a month, my last papers will occur on the 15th November.

Hope I’ll come out of it alive! Wish me luck :P

My NaNoWriMo’11 Novel Idea (Part 2)

by evilnymphstuff

>>Part one HERE.

Angel: “I wonder what it’s like to be evil.”

Daemon: “I wonder what it’s like to be good.”

Human: “Believe me, I’ve been both.”

This resumes the whole message of the novel and this has been taken from my Idea Copybook! :) It’s all about the Imperfection of Humans, and that we have to accept because no good could have existed without evil and vice versa, don’t you think so? I was reading some informative book about worldwide clans like Satanism and it said that without Satan, there wouldn’t have been any Church. It’s like the Yin and the Yang… both completes each other though they contrast each other.

This is a concept that I totally agree with, that I follow in life.

yin yang image

 Used to describe how polar opposites or seemingly contrary forces are interconnected and interdependent in the natural world, and how they give rise to each other in turn. Opposites thus only exist in relation to each other. (Wikipedia)

The background of my NaNo is very fantastical, full of irrealism, but I like to write things like that :P

My NaNoWriMo’11 Novel Idea (part 1)

by evilnymphstuff

As you know I will be participating in NaNoWriMo this year for the first time (so excited!) and let me tell you that, it’s rather hard to think of an idea that will allow you to write it as a whole 50k words novel in one month.

writing a novel

So think Daphnee! Think!!

Since I was 11 years old, I kept a copybook (now I have two of them) in which I would write any idea, any writing inspiration that came to my mind. I recently went through them and wow, the ideas aren’t bad at all! In fact I think that the more we grow up the more we lose some of this sparkling imagination that we had when we were young. Today there is stress, work, etc to tire our brain so…
